Percy Harvin skipped the Vikings’ afternoon workout on Wednesday, the same day a report emerged saying he wanted to be traded.

Harvin, a former first-round pick of the Vikings, expressed his displeasure with the team on Tuesday.

“I just put it this way, there’s a lot of different things that have to be sorted out,” Harvin said on the first day of a mandatory minicamp. “Just haven’t been really happy lately. We’ve got a couple of things to work on. I’m here in the classroom. We’ll go from there.”

Harvin hasn’t been specific about his issues with the team, but he said on Twitter Wednesday that money was not the problem.

Fans I said I have issues to be worked out money not at all being the problem…I’ve dne everything asked and more…

Harvin is making less than a million dollars next season and has two years left on his rookie deal. Many have speculated that he wants a new contract — and the Star Tribune says he does — but he says that’s not the case.

Another tweet he sent confused matters:

Me and cch have been speaking and are on same page…theres nothin I can do

If it’s not money, then my guess is he’s either unhappy with his role on the team or the future of the team. If he’s not happy with his role on the team (he is talented but has been underutilized), then you’d figure that could be worked out if he talked to his coach. But maybe he looks at the team and their supposed quarterback of the future — Christian Ponder — and sees more losing seasons ahead, and perhaps that’s why he’s upset.

Who knows what’s really bothering him, but it just looks like things are starting off poorly for the Vikings. That’s not a good sign for a team that’s fallen far behind the other teams in the division.
